Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I was charged $962.00 for this 90,000 mile check up, when I really only wanted to change the oil & filter. I also wanted the dealer to find the problem with the battery being dicharged when it sits, this was 2 months ago. The Cadillac dealer checked the car 10 months ago as I understand it they told me it was a bad battery cable connection, and it was ok for about 7 months, before it started draining the battery again. Who in the world would program a computer to discharge a battery because there is some electrical problem, this is nonesense. I always thought that the dealers computer when hooked up to the computer on the car could pin point where the problem was then the mechanic would simply fix that problem, I guess I was wrong, it appears that it tells them there is a problem and thats it. I COULD HAVE TOLD THEM THAT.

Thank You, I hope you can find me a solution.
